The Rundown: Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic


Brian Bassett,

Coming off a loss to a very human Bills team and standing alone at the bottom of the AFC East at 1-7, there’s a lot of HOT TAKES!!! around the Jets right now … as one might expect.
  • When will the hammer fall on Rex Ryan?
  • Was the addition of WR Percy Harvin just a way to flash a shiny object at fans??
  • What’s to be done about Geno?!?
    • (Follow up question, is Roc Nation Sports slated to fill the 2.0 version for any Master P / sports punchline?!?)
  • Should the Jets just hit the reset button????
  • Who can be the front office hero of this franchise?????
  • Can Terry Bradway use his necromancy to summon a 1986 Bill Parcells to the 2015 Jets?!?!?
  • Dood! We should totally hire The Grudes and give him full control over personnel!!!  What could possibly go wrong???

John Idzik’s Monday press conference did nothing to alleviate the problem, and might have only made it worse.

And now the townsfolk with pitchforks and torches are at the gate.  ESPN New York’s Johnette Howard is one of those who wants to burn it to the ground, but notes that something funny happened on the way to the fullscale insurrection. To read more of this story, click here

Injury Report: Kerley, Walls do not practice

Jeremy Kerley (illness) and Darrin Walls (calf/knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Oday Aboushi (shoulder), Willie Colon (knee), David Harris (shoulder), Trevor Reilly (knee) and Geno Smith (shoulder) were limited. Smith did not throw on Tuesday.

Phillip Adams (groin), Antwan Barnes (knee), Jeff Cumberland (shoulder/finger), Demario Davis (finger), Eric Decker (hamstring), Chris Johnson (ankle), Nick Mangold (shoulder) and Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) all appeared on the injury report, but were full participants in practice.

Geno did not throw at practice

Geno Smith did not throw the ball at practice on Wednesday, Rex Ryan said.

Smith injured his shoulder during the Jets loss before he was benched for Michael Vick. Smith is expected to be the backup to Vick on Sunday if he’s healthy.

If he can’t play, Matt Simms will be signed off the practice squad to back up Vick.
